University of Toronto, Chair in Israeli Studies

The Andrea and Charles Bronfman Chair in Israeli Studies is dedicated to teaching and scholarship on modern Israeli society, broadly understood, and provides leadership in developing this field across disciplines within the University, in building strong ties with Israeli institutions, in communicating research to the public constituency through the annual Andrea and Charles Bronfman Lecture, and in encouraging research in Israel and related study by young scholars. Professor Emanuel Adler, a political scientist, holds the chair.

The Andrea and Charles Bronfman Student Award Fund in Israeli Studies offers support to undergraduate and graduate students who are traveling to Israel for study or research, or who are pursuing study or research in Canada related to Israel. The Fund also offers awards for the best papers based on research conducted in Israel by students in receipt of research support from the Fund.
